The Missionary Training Service helps
prepare missionaries for the completion of world evangelisation. As a service to
the Lord, its aim is, "That the nations might become an offering
acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:16).
Rev. Ian Benson, who coordinates the MTS, was called to world evangelization in 1975. After training, he worked with the South American Missionary Society for 14 years, first in church planting in the South of Chile, then in theological education by extension. By God's blessing, the courses he helped develop were used by thousands of pastors and Christian workers all over South America.
Since 1986, he has worked with Dr. George Patterson whom God had previously used to plant 100 churches in Honduras. In collaboration with SEAN (Study by Extension to All Nations), they produced the Train and Multiply materials: a curriculum designed to help the growth and multiplication of churches by training pastors and missionaries. These materials are currently being translated into 16 languages and used in 25 countries.
The MTS has produced a series of missionary training booklets especially appropriate for tentmakers.
The Missionary Training Service is a member of the Evangelical Missionary Alliance of the United Kingdom ("Global Connections").
